I agree. Perhaps that there is also something not so obvious - at least 
for me: a BootstrapContext must reference the same XATerminator used 
under the cover by the XAWork referenced by the WorkManager of this context.

The current dependencies are something like that:

TransactionManager <---- XAWork<---- WorkManager <---- BootstrapContext;

So, is it possible to make it "clearer" by providing to the 
(Geronimo)WorkManager a TransactionManager(Proxy)? This latter still 
provides an XAWork view in order to recreate resource adpater 
transactions; one adds to the (Geronimo)WorkManager  a getter for this 
XATerminator reference/attribute; and BootstrapContext only needs by now 
a simple reference to (Geronimo)WorkManager.

This way, the dependencies could be more abvious - one more time, at 
least for me:
TransactionManager <---- WorkManager <---- BootstrapContext.

By the way, as I am talking about XAWork, I think that there are some 
concurrency issues: the begin and end methods should be synchronized 
otherwise, it is possible to run two Work concurrently having the same

Is it possible to have a distinct domain for the JCA services? I mean 
something like:

Moreover, one could perhaps use the naming conventions proposed by 
JSR-77. For instance, a WorkManager could be name:
